In a very odd way, QI reminds me of one of my favourite television shows ever, also courtesy the BBC: James Burke’s “Connections” series. You know, the show that takes you from the discovery of bubblegum to the invention of the flak jacket, and shows you how they’re all connected?

Only QI tends to go from much lower to extreme heights; this clip goes from talking about the Kinsey report and precisely how you’d have sex with chickens (Alan Davies gets a nice one in about eggs and girth) to the inventor of the decimal point and logarithms.
